    One action and a shot. Where is the ball movement?

    Back to the thing from earlier in the year: missed some shots, so stopped executing on both ends. Frustrating as hell.

    Is this game officially over with 9+ minutes in the second quarter? Asking for a friend.

    They’ll probably win but you can’t tell me that their wildly inconsistent play doesn’t bug you.

    Maybe they have some sort of ethical objection to a number of free throw makes in a game.

    Gordon has the worst rim luck this year of anybody I've ever seen.

    I agree watching them is frustrating at times but this is the NBA. Even the dregs of the league make runs. Orlando isn't a horrible squad - they can be competitive some nights. I cannot recall a team that consistently wins wire-to-wire, even against an inferior team. And I watch entirely too much NBA.

    Na, they just have to start deciding to be mentally tough and go back to what they do well when they have these bad runs. That was a good stretch there to up the energy on both ends.

    Holy shit, the Thunder are going to retire their first number ever.

    And it's going to be Nick Collison.

    I'm serious.

    I don't post much round these parts anymore but cant you criticize how they are playing without the implication being that a stretch of bad play is somehow unusual for an NBA team?

    I think it's more that everyone totally freaks out whenever a) energy slips for 5 minutes b) a few shots don't go in

    I get annoyed when the ball starts sticking. Been better the last 5 minutes.

    People can and should post whatever they want. But proclaiming this a loss early in the second quarter is strange. As everyone knows, the NBA is unique in that teams make runs regularly.

    One trip down, Brown receiver a pass, quick pass to Tatum, quick pass back to Brown, open 3, make.

    Next trip down, Brown receives a pass, quick pass to Rozier, Rozier dribbles around for 10 seconds, possession goes to shit.

    Orlando is a brutal brutal example of horrendous DJing and sound effects ruining sports. I’m legitimately distracted now that I’ve noticed it

    Just a fucking assault on the ears

    I think it helps that there's no one in the stadium. How often can you hear the players on the floor like you can here?

    I'm in the minority in this regard, but I genuinely enjoy watching them have to work it out and respond to adversity.

    Also I'm good saying that Jaylen is back.

    I still have flashbacks to when the Celtics played them in the playoffs during the Big 3 era. “THREEEEEEEEEE....Hedo Turk-o-gluuu...pinball sound effect”...ugh.

    Jaylen nailing 3s and finishing in transition is always a good sign.

    And I think the Lakers are going to be the team to sign Morris too.

    Was so nice to see the ball end up in Morris' hands with the clock going down. That used to be the exclusive domain of the Marcus Smart brick.

    If 2016 Kyrie Irving saw clips of himself on D now, he'd think they were doctored. He's getting to Smart-like levels of moving his feet 1-on-1

    Imo it's better for them to have a bad stretch, gut it out, and start playing the right way than it would be to have another beatdown of a shitty team.

    The last month has been playoff Jaylen, and the prior month was moving towards that trajectory.

    At the game. Feels like a 50/50 crowd here. Thinking of volunteering to take free throws for them tonight.
    Also, please attack the rim.
